OS X V10.7 Lion :: Updated Can't Use Microsoft Office 2004?
Mar 30, 2012
I updated to Lion os x and now can not use Microsft Office 2004, I cant open it or uninstall it, it just says powerPC applications are no longer supported.I have lost all emails on Entourage and can only retrieve emails via hostway that have been delivered today.
Trying to get help from Apple care is a nightmare as they need a serial number, which Lion being a digital download does not have one only web order number, which does not work when I put in serial box.
Microsoft on Tuesday released stability and performance updates for Office 2004 and Office 2008 for Mac, both of which also patch vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to overwrite the contents of a computer's memory by using malicious code.
Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac 11.5.1 Update
Aside from the security fix, Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac 11.5.1 Update [14.5MB] also updates the Japanese postal code dictionary in Entourage and fixes an issue that causes Word 2004 to close unexpectedly when opening a document that contains a numbered list.
Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac 12.1.2 Update
The 12.1.2 update for Office 2008 for Mac [159.6MB] is more substantial, repairing a global issue that prevented all Office 2008 applications from running AppleScript scripts from the Script menu, while also delivering a number of individual fixes for Word, Excel and Entourage.
More specifically, Microsoft said Word should now launch more quickly and tables will no longer included random instances of bold text. Other changes improve the display of form fields and the reliability of headers & footers in the word processing application.
Meanwhile, Excel should now open spreadsheet files that contain invalid characters and see improvements to the overall performance of calculations. Number formatting for some international languages and stability when saving workbooks that contain PivotTable reports has also been improved.
One of the major focus areas for Entourage was to improve stability when using Microsoft Sync Services, Microsoft said. In particular, Tuesday's update fixes an issue that where all contacts in Entourage or in the Apple Address Book would be deleted and re-created when you use Microsoft Sync Services. It should also prevent duplication of events and other items in Entourage or in iCal.
Other changes to Entourage focused on improving junk mail filtering, recurring calendar events, time zone information, embedded images, and the reliability when Entourage establishes a encrypted channel.
Student Office 2008 deal
Earlier Tuesday, Microsoft said it has teamed with a select few Apple authorized resellers like Amazon.com to offer students up to 30 percent off its various Office 2008 productivity suites when they're purchased alongside a new Mac before September 8th.
The offer translates into $15 off Office 2008 Home and Student Edition, $80 off Office 2008 Standard Edition, and $150 off Office 2008 Special Media Edition..
Amazon is also offering between $50 and $200 rebates on Apple's entire Mac line through August 25th.
I've just installed new Mac Leopard to my G5 (old version was Tiger), but the Microsoft Office Mac 2004 did not work: I could not print out any M.O. documents? I did google and found that MO Mac 2004 work with Leopard, but somehow not on mine!!
Downloaded latest MS Office 2004 Security Update 11.6.0, and it has poisoned my entire Office suite of apps. Since loading, I cannot access Entourage, Word, or any other Office apps. Error messages pop up repeatedly every time I try to open them. "MS Office library files may have been moved from original location. Reinstall Entourage, etc." For the last 6 years, this software and previous updates have worked flawlessly. This really stinks!!! Do I reload original software over the top of the existing apps., or is there another easier work around that I can use to get back into my MS Office apps.? I am running OS 10.4.11 Tiger with older Power PC processor.
My Entourage 2004 DB is corrupted. The database utility tool is unable to repair it. It gives me an error "an I/O error has occurred". I tried EntourAid and that doesn't work either. When the repair starts, it soon crashes the app with an error -36.
Microsoft Word gives me an error "unable to load Microsoft Framework Library". Not sure if this is related.
Have already repaired permissions, run Onyx, EntourAid, etc.
I'm on a MacBok Pro running OS X 10.6.8 and have Microsoft Office 2004. Suddenly ALL of the Office applications are giving me the error message that the applications have "quit unexpectedly." I get the message literally DOZENS of times, can't reopen the applications, and can't open any of my documents.
It really ***** me that Office 2004 places the Microsoft User Data folder in your Users/Accountname/Documents folder, and if you move it it just makes a new one Is there any reliable way to move the location to somewhere else and keep it that way? The Documents folder should be the realm of the user and the user alone, damn applications should keep their noses out!
I updated to Lion on my desktop a few months ago and I swear now I can't read older Microsoft word and Excel documents correctly on this computer using Office 2011. The document opens and you can see all of the data in a preview window (from finder) but once it opens fully the data/words are not there. I have Lion on a brand new Macbook Pro I just purchased and installed the Microsoft Office 2011 and it opened the excel document I was having trouble with fine.I can't find many links for Office for Mac issues.
I have updated to lion and my office 2004 does not work. I need to buy and install office 2011. do I need to uninstall 2004 first? THe remove office application does not work as it requires power pc which is not supported by lion.
So here is my dilemma. I got a letter a few days ago from the college I am going to, and it included a list of requirements if we were bringing our own computer. One of the requirements was if we had a Mac, to have Office 2008. I have talked to a friend who is replacing her current Macbook with another Macbook later in the summer, and we decided that when she bought her Macbook, that we could split the price of Microsoft Office for Mac 2008. Now, should I just go ahead and continue on with the plan with my friend, or what? Is there a huge difference in Office 2004 and Office 2008?
Has anyone had any compatibily issues with Microsoft Office 11? I frequently make word and powerpoint documents on campus, sometimes on windows computers, sometimes Mac's. I either email the files to myself, or store them on a flash drive. However, when I try to open the files, I simply see a blank document. What's even more frustrating is that these files open in pages on my computer. I suspect I have something enabled on my preferences that is blocking this, but I have no idea what this is. Essentially, any file that I create on my computer works, and also works when opened on another computer. However, any file I create on a different computer(be it mac or windows) is not visible when opened on my computer. I simply see a blank document/blank powerpoint slides.
I am using a totally legal Microsoft office for Mac. I do not set to share any thing from my Mac to anyone. I got this warning in the log and I do not know whether there is any problem with it. I am a bit paranoid if any spyware/trojan that is trying to open backdoord connection to steal data from my Mac. I also sometimes found some strange files in the recycle bin that named something like "recovery" but it turned into something else when clicked on the files.

I'm sure there is a work around to this. I recently upgraded to a new iMac and when I insert my Microsoft program CD, it doesn't autorun. You can browse the file set but there isn't an apparent autorun launch that I can figure out. There is an autorun.inf file.

I just recently downloaded OS Lion 10.7.3 and now I can't use my Microsoft Office suite. I get a error message "You can't open the application Microsoft Word because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."
I'm debating whether or not to buy the OS X Lion, and it all depends on if Microsoft Office is compatible with it. Has anyone ever had problems using the Microsoft Office with the new OS X Lion software?
I recently installed Lion on my mac and just learned that I cannot open my Microsoft Office documents and spreadsheets (I have Office 2004). If I upgrade to Office 2011 will I be able to open the original Office 2004 documents?
I have recently installed the latest updates for Lion and since then my Microsoft Office Home & Business 2011 no longer loads?I have tried reinstalling and still no joy.... What do I do as I need my files for work?
I just got a MacBook Air and transferred all my data from my old Macbook Pro last week. My microsoft office will not open. It opens the M.O. set-up assistant and I run through the steps and check for new updates, install the updates, and then it doesn't open the program. I try to click on the program again, and it runs me through the set-up assistant and updates everytime.
Info: MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
My Tdisk failed and was replaced under AppleCare. I then restored from my Time Machine Backup. I used the (Command R Power keys to initiate this). It completed without errors (eventually). All Apps that I tried seemed to have been recovered successfully except when I attempted toload my MS Office for MAC Apps, I was asked for my product key.Unfortunately this was saved in an email on my system and I cannot retrieve it since I cannot open my MS Outlook.
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7), MAC OS X is 10.6.8!
Does anybody know when Microsoft plans on releasing a newer version of Microsoft Office for Mac? One of my co-workers currently own the 2008 version and he's really unhappy with it. He has an excel file that's around 4MB in filesize, containing some 11,000 rows and a bunch of columns too and it's really slow to work with (he has a 1 year old MacBook Pro) and some times excel also "runs out of memory" it says and the application just freezes. It should be updated properly etc, but I wonder if maybe a newer version more suited for Snow Leopard, might be released soon?
When i try to open a specific file in excel or word, very often a number of other recently used documents open up too!All documents were saved prior to closing at last use. Does anyone know how i stop multiple documents from opening up?iMac mid 2011,Office:mac 2011 "WPX" Home and Student all have up to date software?
